A new community for your next season

The Newnan Times-Herald

A new community in northern Coweta is paving the way for active adult lifestyles. 

The Gardens at Arbor Springs is the premier 55+ community in Coweta County, nestled in the noteworthy Arbor Springs Plantation neighborhood.  

Residents at The Gardens at Arbor Springs will enjoy a variety of thoughtfully-designed courtyard based homes with an array of lifestyle benefits from accessible floor plans with master on the main to a community clubhouse for gathering with neighbors as well as located close to healthcare, shops and restaurants. 

This project is developed and built by McKinney Builders, a longtime Southern Living Custom Builder in the Coweta, Fayette and Serenbe areas and designed by local Southern Living architect Mitch Ginn and Associates. 

Design has played an integral role in these houses to incorporate features to make these houses a delight for those looking to “Begin A New Season.”

Mitch Ginn and Assoc. incorporated a simple plan with open living spaces with vaulted ceilings in the living space master bedroom and master bathroom, master on the main level, flush entry showers, ADA accessible doorways, secure courtyards, ample natural light throughout the home- all oriented towards the courtyard living space. 

McKinney Builders has been building in the area for over 30 years. They are bringing extreme attention to quality delivering houses that are energy-efficient, uplifting and comfortable. 

A higher level of energy efficiency is achieved through optional geothermal heating and cooling, spray foam insulation, thorough exterior building envelope moisture barrier and James Hardie fiber cement siding and smart tankless hot water heaters. 

The homes at The Gardens at Arbor Springs are outfitted with classic yet modern standard finishes, with numerous upgrade options available. 

Each home features a sleek, yet classic design, ample natural light, vaulted ceilings in the great room, master bedroom and master bathroom, reclaimed wood accents,  farm sinks, white oak wood flooring, Pella windows, and fully customizable courtyard spaces. 

Residents will love the unique and spacious interior courtyards, around which the main level of each home is oriented. Designed with entertaining and dining al fresco in mind, optional features include fully-equipped outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, and spa-pools all surrounded by 8-foot privacy wood fencing and a custom front gate with code access. 

In this McKinney Builders custom neighborhood, residences are English cottage-inspired plans with expansion options, all with thoughtful indoor and outdoor living spaces for entertaining with the end-user in mind. 

The one-level Primrose plan offers 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, soaring vaulted ceilings in the great room, master bedroom and front guest bedroom.  

Foxglove, Lilac, and Iris plans also offer open great rooms, vaulted master bedrooms and upper levels for additional space and bedrooms.  

Approximately 49 lots make up Phase 1 of the community, which enjoys county water and sewer. 

The community clubhouse features a fireplace, full kitchen, bathrooms, meeting rooms and office space. It’s designed to be a central meeting point for residents to get together and get to know each other a little better. 

Life at The Gardens at Arbor Springs is designed with ease and enjoyment in mind.

As a resident of The Gardens at Arbor Springs, your HOA dues will cover all lawn maintenance at your home, in your courtyard and throughout the community as well as access to the community clubhouse and reservation of the clubhouse for special events.

When it comes to real estate, it’s always been ‘location, location, location,’ and the Gardens at Arbor Springs offers a jumping-off point to a variety of attractions and resources. 

Residents at the Gardens at Arbor Springs benefit from being 10 minutes to first-class healthcare. The new Piedmont Newnan Hospital opened its state of the art facility in 2012, and in 2016 was awarded the Women’s Choice Award as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Patient Safety. 

The Gardens is less than a half-hour south of Atlanta's Hartsfield Jackson International Airport. Just down the street is the Coweta Club at Arbor Springs Plantation, which has a full golf course and restaurant. Just a few minutes south is charming downtown Newnan with its many shops, restaurants and nightlife. 

The Gardens is available through Evan Mckinney and Sandra Storrar of The Storrar Group with Atlanta Fine Homes, Sotheby’s International Realty.
